their overall political environment is favoring republicans. i think that has to do with the residue and hangover of all the health care controversies that battled the administration. we're still seeing some of the effects of that. the other thing in the republicans' favor is just the overall map when they're going to be in alaska, even in a state like north carolina, that ends up helping republicans, but is it the arizona that veto pointed out, even though it was vetoed, we've seen the republican party trip up on social issues, whether it was on that, whether it's on gay marriage, whether it's talking about contraception, and democrats want to be able to exploit that. i'm not sure that's necessarily going to be that silver bullet come 2014 in the mid terms, but that's what they want. >> let's talk about the senate here. we have a list of some of the republicans mentioned already. cory gardner, but bill cassidy, steve danes, tomorrow -- tom cotton. >> they have a lot of paths to pick up those senate seats, but those you just mentioned, in 2012, they didn't have a good track record. t

, and i -- i think it's impossible in this environment to get anything done comprehensively. comprehensive immigration reform. comprehensive tax reform. the reason we had comprehensive health care reform, in spite of what you think about it, is because you had one party controlling the house, the senate and the white house. and so to do things comprehensively, i think it's tough on either side to get something done. i think you have to, you know, get more -- you're going to have more three yard gains in an environment that we operate in washington. you're going to have more three yard gains, than you're going to have 30-yard gains. it's just the reality of the system. so there's much in the bill that i think you could point to that was positive. but there's obviously a lot of things that even republicans would have concern about. to say that we'll create $700 billion in new revenue, alex, that's an assumption over a ten-year period of time, assuming that chairman camp would be the chairman of ways and means over the next ten years. i would buy into that. but even with that, that probably p
